Hypnosis is a treatment intervention comprised of inducing the client into a relaxed, suggestible state and then offering post-hypnotic suggestions.

Hypnosis is a way of accessing the unconscious for use in mind-body healing, changing behaviors and habits, and enhancing overall performance.

One of the frequently asked questions is, “Will I be under the hypnotist’s control?”  The answer is no.  You will always be in control (probably more control) with full awareness every step of the way.

I am a certified hypnotherapist (CHt).  I have studied with CATCH which is part of the American Society for Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH), and am currently studying with The Wellness Institute in Seattle WA.  In addition to clinical applications, I teach the TRIM-LIFE® Weight Release Program, and Clean-Break,  a smoking cessation program.


Trim Life

Trim-Life focuses on internal motivation.  It is a program that provides a way to permanently release weight using clinical hypnosis and sound nutrition.  It was developed by Diane Zimberoff, LMFT, founder of the Wellness Institute in Seattle, WA.  It is currently being taught at the renowned Cleveland Clinic.

Trim-Life is a four week program that uses the power of your subconscious mind to “change your mind,” about food, eating and physical activity.  Trim-Life embraces a therapeutic approach to emotional eating. You will learn to release guilt, shame, fear, and resentments that have led to yo-yo dieting and repeated failures in the past.

You will learn true relaxation, and receive other resources (workbook and accompanying CDs) that will assist you to make the changes you desire.  Group and/or individual sessions and follow-up sessions are provided to enhance your experience.
